Denver, a question about your sandals

Denver,

What kind of bike sandals do you have, how much were they, where did you get them, and how durable do they seem to be?

Okay, I guess that's four questions.

Shimano SPD, about $75, LBS and I have had them 3 years now with no problem. I haven't worn a regular biking shoe since I got them, including winter.

I.e.,

Got 'em too. Love 'em. Very walkable. You can use 'em with platfortm-type pedals or with SPD.

I hear (to my sorrow) that the ones that just came out are less sandal-like and cover the top of the foot more.
